Hyderabad woman rescued from Kuwait, thanks Sushma Swaraj

Hyderabad: A woman from Hyderabad who was stranded in Kuwait was rescued by Indian embassy officials after her mother wrote a letter to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

Speaking to ANI, the woman alleged that an agent lured her with the promise of a lucrative job in Kuwait as a beautician. However, she said that she was forced to work as a housemaid and was subject to regular torture by her employees.

"I was approached by an agent who promised a beautician job in Kuwait at a monthly salary of Rs 20,000 per month. Believing her, I left to Kuwait on April 9 to work there. But after landing there I realised that there was no beautician job but my employer made me work as a housemaid. My employer started harassing and torturing me daily, they also beat me up many times. I was fed up with the harassment and informed the matter to my mother," she said.

Subsequently, the victim`s mother wrote to Swaraj for assistance, after which Indian Embassy officials brought the woman back to India from Kuwait.

"My mother wrote a letter to EAM Sushma Swaraj to rescue me. Later, Indian embassy officials rescued me from my employer`s residence and sent me back to Hyderabad. I reached here on September 21. I would like to thank Swaraj for helping me," the victim said.
